"The primary goal of Humane Education is to help young people develop a system of humane ethics that will enable them to determine appropriate and inappropriate behavior towards animals and each other."
Anne Arundel County Animal Control has Humane Educators who travel to all points of the county explaining basic animal safety and care. Sharing the love of animals also includes awareness of animal overpopulation and the reason for neutering and spaying. Humane Educators provide films, pet care booklets, videos, classroom games and instructional materials which are free of charge and includes presentations with live animals.
